EVOH Packaging – Increasing Shelf Life of Food

Food packaging is the most essential component for food and beverage manufacturers. Food companies are focusing on increasing the shelf-life of products and keeping them nutrition-rich till the food reached consumers. The wide ranges of food products available in the market that range from packaged frozen food to packaged dry food requires diverse packaging. Moreover, most food products are exposed to external weather. This, in turn, damages the food, creating more food waste. This has led to food packaging playing a crucial role in the safety of food products.

Food manufacturers are largely depending on EVOH as it works as an excellent oxygen barrier for packaged foods. EVOH packaging not only helps in reducing the need for preservatives but also is environmentally friendly. Thus, manufacturers and consumers have shown a keen inclination in investing in EVOH packaging.

Future Market Insights states that the numerous benefits offered by EVOH packaging for food are making it widely acceptable by food and beverages manufacturers.

  • EVOH packaging provides a reliable barrier against different types of gases. This has led to manufacturers of different food products that range from pickles to chips to rely on EVOH.
  • EVOH packaging extends the shelf life of products. This, in turn, is creating lucrative opportunities for the product.
  • Increasing consumer awareness has led to food manufacturers using fewer preservatives to retain the taste of the food. EVOH packaging offers protection for a longer duration, thus, annihilating the need for preservatives.

The changing nature of packaged food is shaping the landscape for EVOH packaging. As consumers become more aware about the impact their choices have on the environment, the demand and EVOH packaging is expected to increase with time. Furthermore, increasing food waste is laying emphasis on the need for effective packaging. This, in turn, is increasing the dependency on EVOH for food packaging.

In the upcoming years, the nature of end user sectors that offer food and beverages is expected to drastically change. Penetration of vegan or plant-based food along with increasing demand for pet food will positively influence the demand for EVOH for packaging.

EVOH, also termed as Ethyl Vinyl Alcohol Copolymer, is a high oxygen barrier material which is widely used for the perishable food packaging applications. It is commonly used as a barrier film in the prevailing flexible and rigid packaging formats such as pouches, bags, etc. through the co-extrusion process, to protect food items from oxygen ingress.

Widespread use of the EVOH barrier material shifted the trend from metalized and foil film laminations to co-extruded barrier films. EVOH can be easily co-extruded with almost all types of polyolefin, polyamides, and other materials through standard co-extrusion equipment. The material is hydrophilic in nature, that’s why it needs to be dried before co-extrusion processing. EVOH resins have very poor adhesion characteristics which create a need for functionalized adhesive resins i.e. tie resins.

Tie resins are used to bond the other polymeric material to the EVOH material layer in the packaging structures. However, the EVOH material possesses high thermal stability when used in properly designed and efficient extrusion packaging systems under standard processing conditions.

Most of the manufacturers in the flexible and rigid packaging market are preferring EVOH as a barrier resin over conventional PVDC resins, due to its environment-friendly and efficient characteristics. Unlike PVDC, EVOH does not contain any harmful elements such as chlorine, metals, dioxins, etc. which may cause endocrinological disorders. EVOH films offer 10,000 times more gas barrier than standard LDPE films. The primary function of the EVOH is to provide barrier to the food products and preserves its freshness for a longer period.
